heck it's one of the few tunes he wrote, figure he had a shot at the words. I agree they should've left the # of crypticals at 140

Not sure it matters a heck of a lot - you say 140, and by your wordage I assume that excludes the five in 85, but I can only account for between 120 and 133 all told in my admittedly quick research.. Regardless, I’ll just try to say it again - when you like a band as much as we do ours, what reason is there to complain that they tried something? Maybe my “perspective” is tainted by the thrill of having been there, but that summer tour in 1985 was so magical, fun filled and rewarding to me – and just to be clear, I mean all that with regards to the music I heard played and danced to.

Someone mentioned a bumper sticker “Jerry Me” the other day. As maligned as this tour has been, I felt the fruition of that sticker’s concept at every show; flubs, Healy fidgeting, warts and all. I’ll give it a rest now, but those who know what I am saying are lucky, and everyone else, I love you, even if you think I’m nuts.
